      Historical Traveler Reviews Art Devlin's Olympic Motor Inn Lake Placid

      Art Devlins is a clean, family-ownded Lake Placid motor inn

      from

      I just returned from a two-night stay at Art Devlins Olympic Motor Inn. My family reserved two second floor rooms. The rooms were very clean and were good sized. The arched ceiling was a nice touch. The bathroom appeared to have been recently renovatied- the sink, toilet and shower stall looked new. Soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion were provided. The water pressure was very strong and the temperature was good. The room contained a large TV with cable stations, a small closet, refrigerator, dresser, bedside stand, table with one side chair and one upholstered armchair.Lighting was good. A sliding glass door lead to a good sized balcony with two plastic chairs and a side table. The balcony had a beautiful view of the Adirondacks.

      The grounds were meticulously maintained- beautiful landscaping with a variety of flowers, greenery, and even a waterfall. The pool appeared to be very clean.

      The location is excellent- walking distance from downtown Lake Placid. But it is not in the middle of the night time activity and the rooms were quiet at night.

      The friendly German Shepherds were an added bonus!

      Art Devlins is an excellent choice for a clean, affordable, lodging choice in a great location. I look forward to returning.

      The cleanest Hotel I have ever stayed in

      from

      What a treasure. I had such a great stay at Art Devlin's. The were rooms were huge and by far the cleanest of any hotel I have ever stayed in. I can not think of one bad thing to say. The grounds were beautiful, the staff attentive and friendly and great homemade muffins for breakfast. I just booked my stay for this year.

      Great getaway

      from

      Devlin's Motor Inn was just as a friend described - great location, very clean, affordable. The owners were very nice and recommended a perfect spot for a fine dinner 'Grill 211'. Warning!! You should like big dogs if you go. The very friendly & very big German Shapards were fine for us but perhaps not for all. We also found the Jackrabbit trail for snowshoeing and XC just up the street. We never got back in our car as the free shuttle to Whiteface picked us up nearby.

      Great place, nice people

      from

      My wife, daughter and I stayed here over President' Weekend. The hotel was full, but the staff handled it easily. The rooms are large (ask for second floor, with arched ceilings), nicely appointed, very clean, and show the pride of the owners.

      Art and his wife were gracious and informal...the breakfast of coffeee, hot chocolate, etc., and great muffins and doughnuts, was the perfect start to the day. The lobby is not grand, but just plain comfortable!

      The hotel is convenient to the ski shuttle to Whiteface Mountain (much easier than driving), and also to the downtown and its stores, sights, and restaurants. I'd go back and stay here anytime.

      Art Devlin's is wonderful

      from

      I am not usually compelled to write reviews however my experience at Art Devlin's was so great I want to share it. Art and his wife are very friendly and helpful, the rooms and common areas are very clean. The construction and furnishings are very high quality and the location is perfect for all activities. My group will definitely return. The new lobby is cozy and it is a great treat to look at the late Art's enormous medal collection.

      You don't need the big name hotels to get a great room

      from

      Forget the big name hotels. If you go to Lake Placid or anywhere near it, stay at Art Devlins. Great, clean room, excellent bathroom. Even at 16 below 0 the heat and hot water were perfect. Nice, friendly staff and very accomodating. (we needed a late checkout). Also, the large selection of TV channels was a nice surprise to what you would usually find in a hotel. Will definitely stay again.

      Terrific Place

      from

      Great dog-friendly lodging. We stayed two nights this past August and liked it so much we intend to go for a week next August. Walking distance to restaurants and the trail around the lake. Comfortable beds and a pleasant setting.

      Fantastic

      from

      We reserved a room for 2 days but liked it so much we stayed one more day. Everyone was friendly and helpful. I also enjoyed the owner's dogs. I will be going back.

      A great place for families

      from

      Our family spent a few days in Lake Placid last week at Art Devlin's. Very nice, clean rooms with jacuzzi tub/shower and small refrig. If you take rooms with a view you will have a patio overlooking the mountains with 2 chairs and side table. There were a couple of large gaps in the railing. They added extra wood within minutes of asking to make sure our youngest didn't figure out how to get through. The kids loved the pool even though it was chilly. Beautifully landscaped! Doughnuts, muffins, coffee, and tea were available each morning.

      Can't think of anything bad to say

      from

      We stayed at Art Devlin's (Lake Placid) for a week in August 2003. Wow, do these people ever know the business! Immaculately clean rooms.

      Lovely decor. The grounds were kept spotless. Gorgeous pool - beautifully landscaped. Free (good) coffee, doughnuts and muffins every day in the lobby. Pets welcomed! Nice quiet location, within walking distance of Olympic Museum and shopping district. Wonderful service. I can't think of anything bad to say about this place except that we had to finally go home.

      Talk about crazy weather. It even snowed on Sunday!

      Because of the intermittent, but consistent rain, we were unable to climb. So what did we do with all of our days?

      There is a lot of history here. For those of you who know Ben, you've probably heard the story. This is the same path to the lake that Ben did back when he was 19 years old. The only difference is that Ben had done that climb back in December, when it was covered in snow and was VERY cold. And after having arrived ...

      After staying in some dirty, smelly motels along our route so far we checked AirBnB to see if there was anything a little nicer in the Adirondacks for some time away from Interstate roads. We were heading towards Point O Pines, Rachael's camp that I had heard so much about for the past 4 years, and then deeper into the Adirondack state ...
